Let me see if I have this timeline straight:
- Yesterday, out of the blue, the St. Paul Pioneer-Press announced that Flip Saunders finally told the University of Minnesota that he's not a candidate for their head coaching position.
- Today, out of the blue, Tubby Smith left the University of Kentucky to accept the Golden Gophers job.
The world is full of strange coincidences.
